    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

In a model system the physical transport phenomena that occur during the sterilization of a canned liquid food were investigated. Flow phenomena and heat transfer were studied experimentally as well as theoretically. Experiments on flow patterns and temperature profiles revealed a boundary layer flow at the vertical sidewall, a stratified core in the upper part of the container and a perfectly mixed, unstratified region in the lower part of the container. A dimensionless correlation for the overall heat transfer coefficient from steam to liquid was determined.

From the observed flow patterns and temperature profiles a simplified mathematical model was developed, with which temperature stratification in the liquid during heating could be simulated. The applicability of the simplified model for lethality calculations was briefly examined.

Some attention was also paid to the effect of solid particles on heating characteristics of the container contents.

Literature on the research of convection heating of liquids in closed containers was reviewed, as well as literature about the influence of temperature stratification on natural convection boundary layer flow.
